The Goorin Bros. Hat Shop celebrated another Chicago location in Lakeview this month, and I was excited to attend the opening event on a hot summer night. I arrived with friends and grabbed a cocktail, while mingling with some of my favorite people. We perused the eccentric summer collection of hats and listened to the sounds of the live band. Friend and Store Manager, Drew Dallas Deardorff, greeted us shortly after we arrived with a hug and a smile - just the kind of service that this hip hat shop offers to it's patrons every day. A portion of the proceeds from the event went to Ravinia Festival's Reach*Teach*Play Program and guests could enter to win a trip for two to Hawaii! (What better place to wear your new hat than on a sandy beach?) The event was a success, and judging by the amount of hats on top of heads, it was clear that everyone had a good time. Congrats to Drew for all his hard work. Lakeview is lucky to have a great guy like you - and a stellar store like Goorin!
